Cirque Adrenaline

Old and new come together in this contemporary take on the traditional circus. Combining classical circus elements with a modern and carnivalesque flair, the show brings together the best from the world of juggling, stunt motorcycling and acrobatics, all with a generous dose of comedic relief. Think of it as circus on steroids ... but funny.

Udderbelly Festival

Everybody’s favourite upside-down purple tent cow will arrive to our harbour late this year. The iconic inflatable venue will be shipped across the ocean to Hong Kong to host the 18-show comic festival that promises to be a knee-slapping good time. Of the many highlights, Michael Winslow, aka the human sound effects guy from the Police Academy films, will do his thing with nothing more than his voice and a mic.

December 4-February 14. Central Harbour Front Event Space, Central, various times and prices. HK Ticketing. Inquiries: 3929 9487

Xanadu

Roller discos are no longer hip but the music from that era (1980s) lives on in Hong Kong Singers’ adaptation of the cult film and Broadway musical. The story follows a Greek muse who lands in California and joins forces with a struggling artist to open the world’s first roller skating discotheque. In English.
